  • Written by Winehouse and Salaam Remi, who also produced the track, this won the prestigious Ivor Novello songwriting award. It helped the album, which was Winehouse's first, sell over a million copies in the UK. Critics loved Winehouse's sound, and she was nominated for Top Female Solo Singer at the Brit Awards. >>

  • In this song, Winehouse sings about a relationship with a guy 7 years older than she is, but who doesn't act like a man. His wussy behavior frustrates her to the point where she calls him a "lady boy" and asks, "are you gay?"
